127. Each municipality shall submit to the executive committee for approval any project for the construction, enlargement or alteration of a waterworks system, purification works and water treatment plants or works, before passing the resolution or the by-law necessary for implementing such project.
Within thirty days after receiving such application, the executive committee shall determine whether such project is of a purely local nature or has any intermunicipal repercussions.
If the executive committee decides that the project has intermunicipal repercussions, the Council, by resolution, subject to the approval of the Minister of the Environment, may order such alterations as it deems expedient to the plans and specifications of the proposed works and authorize the municipality to carry out such works. Failing an agreement between the Community and the municipalities concerned respecting the apportionment of the cost of the works, such apportionment shall be fixed by the Minister of the Environment upon the request of the Community or an interested municipality.
